Welcome to the Science Communication Unit student showcase

Posted on

Our postgraduate science communication programmes here at UWE Bristol’s Science Communication Unit have now been running for over a decade.  Many of the assignments our students complete while they are with us involve doing practical science communication work, such as creating short TV programmes or developing brand new science magazines. 

We’re proud of the work our students do and we’ve selected a sample of it to showcase here. Take a look at the TV programmes our students have written, filmed, presented and edited as part of the Science on Air and on Screen module. We’ve also selected a sample of the science magazines they have developed, planned, written and designed as part of the Writing Science module for you to read.

As well as creating TV programmes and writing science magazines, our students get to do other exciting stuff too, such as creating an interactive exhibit for a science event. We’ll be adding to the Showcase over the coming months and years, so watch this space! 

We also have regular posts from our students on the main Science Communication Unit blog revealing how our postgraduate science communication programmes have helped develop their careers and how they have put the practical skills showcased here to great use!

There’s more information about the MSc in Science Communication here. We are also launching a new postgraduate science communication programme that will be entirely online, the Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Science Communication. You can find out more about that here.

If you’re interested in the MSc in Science Communication and would like an informal chat about the course, please email programme leader Andy Ridgway: andy.ridgway@uwe.ac.uk. Or, if you’re interested in discussing the Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Science Communication, get in touch with programme leader Emma Weitkamp: emma.weitkamp@uwe.ac.uk
